Approximately 7.2% of the adult U.S. population currently has asthma. Among the 50 states, current asthma prevalence ranged from 5.3% (Louisiana, South Dakota) to 9.5% (Massachusetts). Use of the asthma history module permits identification of states where asthma is better controlled, regardless of prevalence level. Among the eight states that used the asthma history module, some states appear to have better controlled asthma than others.
